Stem Ginger & Oat Crisp-Topped Apples with Caramel Sauce #AppleWeek #Sponsored

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek.
I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes.
All opinions are mine alone.

Well, this year's #AppleWeek may be over, but I still have some recipes to share. When you have an entire parade of amazing sponsors, it definitely takes more than five days of recipes for me to fit them all in. So, you will be getting a few bonus recipes. And, as far as recipes went, two dozen bloggers brought you over ninety recipes to bring apples to your Autumn table. I hope you'll check them out. Also, there is still time to read my introductory post, peruse the prize packages from our event sponsors, and enter the giveaway: here. You won't want to miss out. Really.

I received some gluten-free oat grahams from one of the event sponsors - Nairn's - and loved the stem ginger ones. Well, they were all delicious. But the stem ginger ones needed to be paired with apples in my mind. And the addition of oats makes this dessert feel a little bit more healthy. Sudden inspiration!

Stem Ginger & Oat Crisp-Topped Apples with Caramel Sauce

This crisp was made with delicious apples (thank you, Envy), flavored with vanilla (thank you, Taylor & Colledge), topped with and oat and graham cracker crumble (thank you Flahavan's and Nairn's) and drizzled with caramel sauce (thank you, Torani)! You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on side to make it the perfect end to an autumn dinner!

And I loved the kitchen tools from Zyliss that made coring these lovelies a cinch. Gotta love these generous sponsors* who sent the bloggers products to use in their recipe creations.


  • 2 to 3 apples (prefer Envy Apple)
  • 3/4 C rolled oats (prefer Flahavan's)
  • 1/4 C butter, softened + 2 T butter, cold and chopped 
  • 1/2 C flour + 2 T
  • 1/4 C cane sugar (prefer Bob's Red Mill) + 2 T
  • 1/4 C crushed graham crackers (prefer Nairn's)
  • 1 T diced candied ginger
  • 1 t pure vanilla paste (prefer Taylor & Colledge)
  • 2 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • caramel sauce for serving (prefer Torani)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Use an apple corer to remove the core from each apple. Slice apples and place them in a bowl along with 2 T flour, 2 T sugar, and 1 t ground cinnamon. Toss to coat completely and turn the apples into a buttered baking dish. Dot the top with 2 T chopped, cold butter.

Place the softened butter, flour, sugar, graham crackers, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger in a small bowl. Rub the butter into the mixture to create a crumble topping. Stir in the candied ginger pieces.

Spoon the mixture evenly over the apples.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until apples are tender and the crumble topping crisped and brown. Let cool for at least 10  minutes before serving.

Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve immediately with the vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
